Issa 一茶 1811 age 49
ama-gasa mo higasa mo anata makase kana
trust in Buddha!
The phrase anata makase ("trust in the Beyond!") refers specifically to trusting in the saving power of Amida Buddha. "Umbrella-hats" (ama-gasa) and "parasols" (higasa) protect from rain and sun, respectively. Issa's meaning seems to be: Rain or shine, the best course is to trust in Buddha!
another nice one i particularly like the message in this one
